Dr. Abraham Borbor (8/24/14)

"...No life is more important than another, but the contribution of some people to society makes their passing more painful and devastating than others.  That is the case of Dr. Abraham Borbor who passed last evening (8/24/14) from Ebola... Dr. Borbor was one of those rare breed of doctors trained during the civil conflict who specialized and returned not only to offer services, but to teach at the medical school and mentor young medical doctors...His role in training and mentoring young medical undergraduate and postgraduate students was pivotal in the future of health care delivery in Liberia. The impact of his contribution will continue to be manifested for years to come through those he trained and worked with..."
